because of rookie mistakes like that? >> that is a rookie mistake. if obama can go to copenhagen to try to get the olympics to chicago, clearly he can go to boston to rally a demoralized base and make sure that democrats turn out. if democrats turn out, democrats will win. >> those are not two popular -- he did not get the olympics for chicago. and he did not get the climate change deal. >> but doing nothing is not an option. his domestic agenda hangs in the balance. it's important to go up there today to rally people. to get the obama voters who came out in 2008, to go to the polls. and explain the difference between voting for miss coaxially. i wish we had more time. we could go down and call the row, from the economy, to the health care, to the serious troubles that this country faced. and demonstrate, how this president has led by example. but he's going up there. it's the right thing to do. >> i think it's a wake-up call. i know everybody says she's run a lackluster campaign. it's massachusetts. but it's a wake-up call that democrats cannot run as a managerial party moving forward.
